Feb 17 – Feb 26
CLOSE UP & FAR AWAY by Carte Blanche 2.0 (art-of-listening) leads a group of participants into an immersive, poetic and intimate meeting and experience in their very own homes. Itis a participatory immersive performance created on ZOOM.
“For a while my screen was a universe, a garden, a refuge. A place to share with a group of people and with someone who offered us, for a moment, to look at the world with different eyes. It was magical.”
(Participant from test showing)
This is a live theatre experience that talks directly into the reality of our global interconnectedness.
There is an unexpected beauty in the image of a group of strangers, often from many different corners of the world, appearing together on screen – a tessellated pattern of little squares revealing a glimpse of people’s private worlds.
Playing with the double-reality that ZOOM opens up – the frame of the screen and a physical space which each sit in – CLOSE UP & FAR AWAY allows audiences to share an embodied live experience of being together, despite physical distance.
